It is amazing how all the people we cross paths with in life leave a mark on us. As I get a little further in this journey, I am more conscious than ever to leave a little gold dust on others that I have scraped off the Throne of Grace.
Leave a little gold dust: a smile, an encouraging word, a kiss left on a wrinkled face, a blessing declared on a child, a fervent prayer, a needed hug, a piece of bread, an act of kindness, a treasured gift, a glimmer of imparted hope, forgiveness not deserved, a cup of cold water, a healing touch, Good News of the Savior declared to those with ears to hear…
If the earth stands long enough—flowers on our graves will cease, tombstones will be covered in moss, and our earthly memory will fade into oblivion. But God has a Book of the Living whose names resound for eternity, whose robes glisten with white, and whose crowns gather at His feet.
You are not going to live forever on this earth. Divest yourself before you leave. Jesus said to lay up your treasures in Heaven. Scattered gold dust here will be bars of treasure there.
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and NKJV).where thieves break in and steal;/ but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal./ For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:19-21 NKJV).
Yours on the Journey,
